    I know you can get a headache from caffeine withdrawal but that's the only symptom I know of. I stopped drinking tea or coffee a few yers ago but even before that I only had one or two a day maximum.
    Sorry can't be more help.

    Hi Jacy,

    I stopped the full strength coffees and teas about 3 or 4 years ago now because my heart palpatations were going crazy and it increased my anxiety :(

    I did feel a bit poo for the first 48 hours but it soon passed. Headache and tiredness - that was about it.

    Try wheening off it slowly with decaf.

    Hope it goes ok - GOOD LUCK

    Luv Curly xx

    Jacy,

    If you are a heavy coffee consumer then withdrawal can be very tough

    You can wean down first instead of the cold turkey approach

    AVOID pro plus!

    hi jacy,
    weaning yourself off is probably better - i just stopped drinking tea and coffee from one day to the next because my panic was so bad. i felt terrible for a while but at the same time i physically couldn't drink anything with caffeine in it because it would make me even more jittery.
    thing is, i love love love coffee. i absolutely could not bear to not drink coffee ever again. i am now at a point where i can drink maybe 2 cups of coffee a week.. so no regular caffeine breaks for me but at least i really enjoy coffee when i allow myself to drink it!
